England made it eight successive victories over Australia at Twickenham to continue their perfect record against the Wallabies under Eddie Jones.

England made it eight successive victories over Australia at Twickenham to continue their perfect record against the Wallabies under Eddie Jones.

Earlier in the day, Stuart Hogg became Scotland’s equal top try-scorer in a defeat to South Africa while Italy slipped to defeat at home to Argentina.

Scotland 15-30 South Africa

Stuart Hogg scored two tries to become Scotland’s equal top try-scorer of all time but it was not enough as Gregor Townsend’s went down 30-15 to world champions South Africa at BT Murrayfield.

Two tries from Makazole Mapimpi ended up being crucial for the Springboks, while Elton Jantjies, Handre Pollard and Francois Steyn kept the scoreboard ticking over from the kicking tee.

Under pressure in the scrum, Scotland took the lead thanks to a Finn Russell penalty, and after Mapimpi’s opening try, a fine score for Hogg put the home side back in front.

Russell missed a late shot at goal but the Scots led 10-8 at the break, only for South Africa to hit straight back in the second half through Mapimpi once again.

Jantjies converted and added two penalties to make it 21-10 before Scotland hit back once again through Hogg for his 24th Test score, drawing level with Ian Smith and Tony Stanger.

Scotland were back to within six, but two penalties from Pollard and a long-range effort from Steyn ensured that South Africa could see the game out.

Italy 16-37 Argentina

Argentina ran in five tries as they got the better of Italy 37-16 in Treviso.

Early scores from back-rowers Marcos Kremer and Juan Martin Gonzalez helped the visitors into an early lead as they moved 17-0 clear.

Two penalties from Paolo Garbisi cut the deficit for Kieran Crowley’s men but they conceded a third try immediately after half-time to Matias Moroni.

Stephen Varney responded in kind, but it was Argentina who finished the stronger thanks to scores from Santiago Cordero and replacement Facundo Bosch.

England 32-15 Australia

Jamie Blamire’s try capped off a fine 32-15 victory for England against Australia at Twickenham.

The hooker has become something of a try-machine for England, having scored in four successive Tests, and he kept that streak alive with the clock in the red here.

The win was already in the bag by that point, an eighth in a row against the Wallabies who have not beaten England since Eddie Jones took over.

While Australia took an early lead with a James O’Connor penalty, England hit back through Freddie Steward, put into a gap by Marcus Smith before stepping Kurtley Beale.

Owen Farrell converted and added a penalty that was quickly cancelled out by O’Connor. The back-and-forth continued with another penalty apiece before Tom Wright was sent to the sin-bin for a dangerous tackle on Jamie George.

O’Connor pulled back three points before half-time, and another penalty at the start of the second made it a one-point game.

But Australia were soon back to 14, Angus Bell this time seeing yellow for a tip tackle with Farrell slotting the resulting penalty.

After a rare miss, he added another and Smith then took over kicking duties and pushed England more than a score clear.

Australia gave it their all to get back into it, but after Len Ikitau tried to offload after a break down the right, Sam Simmonds stepped in to intercept race clear and then find Blamire who had clear grass in front of him as he raced 40 metres for the try.
